Hot water heater has hot in tank but dose not come out of hot water line on tank


most electric hot water systems use a heat transfer process where the element is in one tank and the house water is in another
the house water is what is being drawn off when you turn on a tap
there is a regulator valve at the top of the tank with a small lever that you open up to let water in and air out of the system
another point is that there may be a hot/cold mixer on the hot water outlet which limits the temperature of hot water to prevent scalding injuries in the bath and shower or sink
If you have one fitted they are known to malfunction and cut the hot water temperature down as, they mix too much cold water into the hot water pipe.
have a plumber check it out

Power out for 48 hours, tankless water heater located outside of house, temperature around 20 degrees, no hot water coming out of tap, where do i begin?


First, I don't even want to know why someone would put a tankless outside as you have found out...really bad idea. In order to help you, more information is needed. Is this a gas or electric unit? Or a gas unit with electric controls? Is it mechanically or electronically controlled ( a make and model would help). Are the water lines to or from the tank exposed? When you say no hot water coming from the tap does that mean when you turn on the hot water faucet you just get cold water or no water?

I went to take a shower this morning and the water was ice cold. For more than twenty minutes the water ran and never warmed up. Are there common things to check my hot water heater for in this situ


There is an adjustment knob to control how hot the water can become. There might be a problem at the tap (however, if this is the case, you would still get hot water everywhere in the house). If the entire house isn't getting hot water, and the knob is set at the hottest water, you probably need to get the hot water tank replaced.

How do I stop terrible noise whenever any of the hot taps are used in the house


assuming you have checked the washer of the tap in question as they act like reeds in a wind instrument when they start to perish?Otherwise it may be trapped air in pipes.one possible solution is to open the tap slightly then using a cloth try to stop the water flowing out by finger/hand pressure and release and restrict several times over a period of a minute. , due to the principle that you can not compress water only air the air now has a chance to escape.try this on all the taps in the system from top of house down.also bleed any radiators you may have before any if the above.Some may suggest connecting the cold supply into the hot via hose and turn on the taps ever so slightly a quarter of turn to force air back into tank as cold supply is usually higher pressure that the gravity fed hot supply.

Why no water will come out of the water heater


Is there a shutoff on the hot water line coming out of the tank? Is this problem only at one tap or all of the taps in the house? Is the cold water supply to the tank turned off? If it is no water will flow since the cold water pressure pushes the hot out of the tank.

Is my water heater leaking?


You have water leak that you can hear running water.
Could be broken pipe under house.
Could be water running out of tank at TP valve.

Turn off all water taps and put ear against each pipe at tank.
If TP valve is leaking, then replace TP valve.
If pipe is broken under house, then call contractor.

My reliance natural gas water heater overheats causing scalding water to come out of my faucets. I have had authorized service companies come out three times to replace and retrofit different controls and...


Information below is for tank-type electric or gas heater only.

There is a condition called stacking.
This might apply to your water heater or not.
Having authorized service people to your house 3 times suggests more complicated mix of problems.

Stacking is caused when there are repeated short draws of hot water.
As you know, each time any hot water is drawn out of faucet, cold water immediately enters bottom of tank through the dip tube. The dip tube is connected to cold water inlet and runs to bottom of tank.
So all cold water enters bottom of tank close to the gas water heater thermostat.
See illustration of dip tube, that also shows copper thermostat sticking into tank that is connected to gas valve.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Clean-sediment-out-of-water-heater.html#flushelectric

Let's say your water heater if fully heated and burner is off.
A short draw of hot water causes cold water to enter tank.
Another short draw. And then another short draw, each draw happens close to same time as other draws.
Water at top of tank is plenty hot, but bursts of cold water get near thermostat and cause thermostat to turn on burner.
Burner heats water and more hot water rises to top of tank. Water at top of tank becomes overheated each time stacking occurs.

Again, a stacking situation may not be the cause of your problem.
However, remember if single-handled faucet is opened straight upward, then that draws both hot and cold water. And cold water immediately enters tank.
Only when the single-handled faucet is lifted with the handle all the way to the right, does it draw only cold water. Even so, some single-handled faucets have bleed-over between hot and cold sides, so hot water is drawn anyway.

Another possibility is that the dip tube ends at or near thermostat, instead of going all the way to bottom of tank. The dip tube should go straight down from cold water inlet, but dip tubes are made of plastic, and some self-cleaning tanks have a curved dip tube or dip tube with perforations that create currents designed to stir sediments off bottom of tank (although this is not proven to be effective deterrent to sediment formation).

Hot water comes out cold side for few seconds and gets cold, no hot from hot side, only cold


Make sure that the water pipes for the cold water coming in and the hot water going out are connected to the correct positions on the water heater. If the connections get reversed, the water that is supposed to be hot will be drawn from the bottom of the tank and will not be as hot as it should be. The cold water input goes to the bottom of the tank. The hot water out comes from the top of the tank.
